Intersting to see Dreamlinux in the #10 position, pretty amazing for such a new distro.

page views on distrowatch. Distrowatch is a great site, but I think it's almost turned into a distro popularity contest.

Still, great that we're holding the lead.

the first # is Rank...then Distribution...then H.P.D.

(Rank Distribution H.P.D*)


specifically, Page Hit Ranking

Data span: LAST 7 DAYS

*H.P.D = hits per day
Updated daily


The Page Hit Ranking statistics have attracted plenty of attention and feedback. Originally, each distribution-specific page was pure HTML with a third-party counter at the bottom to monitor interest of visitors. Later the pages were transformed into plain text files with PHP generating all the HTML code, but the original counter remained unchanged. In May 2004 the site switched from publicly viewable third-party counters to internal counters. This was prompted by a continuous abuse of the counters by a handful of undisciplined individuals who had confused DistroWatch with a voting station. The counters are no longer displayed on the individual distributions pages, but all visits (on the main site, as well as on mirrors) are logged. Only one hit per IP address per day is counted.

The figures in the third column of each table represent the average number of hits per day for the specified period. The tables are updated daily at around 40 minutes past midnight GMT.

No RedHat? Isn't RedHat Linux doing really well with user numbers?

Not with the kind of people who are likely to visit distrowatch, which just proves the very, very limited use of these numbers.
